  • No, mine broke while I was laying in bed... I had been contracting regularly for several hours the day previously and all night at 5:30 am I hurt this little *pop* and felt a teeny trickle. I got up and went to the bathroom and that's when it really started coming out. =0)

  • Mine broke from how strong my first contraction was. Even then there was no gush, like you think there will be. I was afraid of that also. It leaked out pretty slowly. I didn't time it or anything, but I would say it was about 2 minutes before I even saw the fluid coming out. I put on one of the big pads and took a towel to sit on for the trip to the hospital and all was fine. Don't worry. I have litterally only had two women tell me theirs came in a gush and if yours happens to do so, I'm sure everyone who sees it happen will understand that you are in labor and not peeing yourself...

  • lol mine is similiar to blondie09. lol. mine broke when i had to go to the bathroom at 5 in the morning. it doesnt GUSH out. it came out little by little. i wore a pad until i got to the hospital and i didnt leak through that or
    the water came out right when i wiped myself when i finished peeing, it freaked me out..cuz it like...SHOT out like the baby had a nerf gun or it was weird. i didnt know it was water until i went back to bed and it slowly came to me that i finished peeing and then that happened. thats when i realized my water broke. lol. i was very "air headed" when i was prego with my daughter. lol good luck!

  • Yes and no. Mine ruptured while I was taking a walk at 4 in the morning. But like most women, it was just a trickle. So little that I wasn't even certain. Very few women get the foot soaking, call-for-a-mop-up gush.

  • Nope. My dr. did all 3 of mine at the hospital.

  • Well, no, it broke when I was drying off from getting out of the bathtub. I bent down and it started seeping down my legs. Not the whole giant gush but a pretty steady trickle. I was surprised b/c I didn't think it'd be that much or so constant. I leaked up until I got to the hospital; I sat on a towel until they decided to actually check if it had actually broken. Haha I just had to get out of the wheelchair.

    This one I'm worried about that happening too, b/c I'm working later this time.
